 keeping them in multiple boxes has become a hassle and I long to put a board together.

Definitely the way to go.  This kit came with a gig bag and velcro, ties, some cables & fasteners.

There once was a Forumite named Thundergod who posted this handy graphic.  I say play around and see what gives you the sound in your head!

I have a box of pedals I don't use anymore, I my attempt to reduce noise. So now I use heavy Roland cables going into a Vox Wah, to an RK5 multi pedal  with Boost, OD, Sans Amp with Reverb and Delay. Then my signal is split to two matching 15 watt valve amps with 12" Celestions and run analog Delay and Chorus, with true bypass, through the effects loop.

Prior to going to tube I was using 6 Roland Cubes, all set slightly different, usually Black Face Chorus Delay and Reverb. I used Cubes so I could play without power because quite a few people here on the Island live without electrical utilities.

The Strymon power supplies intrigue me.

 

Zuma will change your pedal life, and I mean that.  Lots of the problems we have are not the pedals or the cables or the beer signs or the fridges, it's the power supply.  If my Zuma broke tomorrow I would Overnight another one, no matter what it costs.  It's expensive I know, but worth every penny.

Those one spots are tempting cuz they are cheap... but they aint worth the trouble they'll cause.

I only use it for measuring relief.

I have a capo and have never used it.  I finally found a use for mine after watching a video.  On the Riviera and the Casino, I always loose the tail bridge strings when changing them and it gets frustrating trying to hold everything in place while tightening the tunning key.  The video suggested placing a capo on the string once you got it tight on the tail piece.  I thought, Now why haven't I ever thought of that before?

Good idea! 

I've never used a capo on electric guitar. I have a new unopened one that wont get used until I need an acoustic accompaniment.

My usual signal chain, in order, on the pedal board, with the frequency of use at any given live gig:

Line 6 wireless, typically. I'm not adverse to guitar cords though. 

Tuner (Often)
Compressor (20% of the time)
Talk Box (Two or three songs, max)
Distortion ( 50% of the time)
Phase Shifter (10% of the time)
Mel 9 ( One or two songs, max)

Reverb is in the amp. (Amps)
🙂

I remember, Thundergod.  From Ecuador.  He was cool.

Those were some tumultuous times on the forum.
